Setting table with when creating a note using ENML from Zapier

Recommended Posts

I have a Zap set up that creates a note every day. The note has a table and on the way from Zapier to Evernote the table width gets messed up. 

Here's the content I'm sending from Zapier:

<table style="border-collapse: collapse; min-width: 100%;">
<colgroup>
	<col style="width: 610px;" />
</colgroup>
<tbody>
	<tr>
		<td style="width: 610px; padding: 8px; border: 1px solid;">
          Hi
      	</td>
	</tr>
</tbody>
</table>

When it shows up in Evernote the width part of the style is gone and the table is very narrow. I checked with Zapier support and they say they can see the width going out over the wire to evernote. Any idea what's happening?

Hi.  This is a (mainly) user-supported forum so your best bet to get under the hood advice will be to try Twitter - @EvernoteHelps or to ask Zapier support to take this up on your behalf.  If the functionality is important to your workflow you could subscribe and ask Support directly...

Thanks! Already asked Zapier and they said they’re passing width through so it’s a Evernote issue. I don’t currently have an Evernote subscription, I’ll try twitter.

Did you ever find a solution? Running into the same frustrating problem. :/

I talked with Evernote support and they said it's likely Evernote is sanitizing the input from Zappier and their tech team is looking into it, but no ETA. She suggested a good work around - just set up an evernote template instead of using the Zapp to create a note.

Thank you so much for the response! That would be wonderful to do but I am not sure it can be done in Zapier - do you have any input on how to ensure that Zapier selects a template for every new note? I would be forever grateful. As far as I can tell there is no way to tell Zapier to use a pre-set template that we can then push text into.

I think I didn’t explain clearly the suggestion was to use a template INSTEAD of a zap. I had a simple scenario. I was using a zap to create an empty daily journal note at 3 am every morning. With a template I would just create a new note from a template when I want to journal. 

I’m not sure what to do in your case, it sounds more complex.
